Aubrey Wigner: Dr. Wigner organizes teaching materials and supports a team of recitation leaders for ESHP 190. I have served as a member of that teaching team for the last 5 years. Dr. Wigner's energy ignites our team and prepares us for all possibilities. His ability to think creatively during the pandemic and assist us in moving our courses online is appreciated.

Kenneth Szymusiak: I have worked with Ken on entrepreneurship programs at MSU for several years. He is the lead instructor of a teaching team for ESHP 190. It has been a pleasure to serve on that team for the last 5 years. Ken is always working on improving student learning. He is bold and willing to test new teaching approaches. I always appreciate the resources he provides to us as co-instructors while still allowing us the flexibility to share our expertise and manage our recitations.

Michelle Snitgen: I have co-led a social innovation themed recitation session for ESHP 190 with Michelle for the last 3 years. Michelle is always thoughtful in her preparation for our sessions. Students appreciate her organized approach. She is a wonderful colleague! I appreciate her willingness to work collaboratively and blend our teaching styles to deliver the best learning opportunities for our students. We worked together to transition our recitation to a virtual environment during the Spring 2020 semester and improved our online teaching strategies for Fall 2020. Michelle's organized approach and flexibility made our transition to virtual effective. I am grateful for the opportunity to teach with Michelle. She offers so much to our colleagues and our students.
